Man stole cash from charity box at Carlisle takeaway

A man has admitted stealing cash from a charity collection box during a crime spree.

Martin Brown, 50, pleaded guilty at Carlisle Crown Court to three counts of burglary and one count of going equipped for burglary.

The thefts all happened on December 17 last year and took place in Carlisle city centre, the court was told.

One incident involved the theft of money from a charity box at a takeaway.

Brown, of no fixed abode, also stole £60 in cash from a Thai restaurant.

The court heard he had also entered Argos in Lowther Street intending to steal, and was carrying a crowbar, gloves and a torch at the time.

A fifth charge of attempted burglary at 18 Lonsdale Street, which Brown denied, was allowed to lie on the file.

He was remanded in custody and is due to be sentenced on Tuesday.
